What a different in Meaning?

Do you know what "Tsunami" literally means? It seems the literal meaning is "harbour wave". Tsu - Harbour, port. Nami - wave. But put it together and it takes a whole different meaning - tidal wave.

Harbour wave - could this well be the mother of all euphemisms? What a understatement! A harbour wave has no right to be s destructive and devastasting.

John 19:30 records Christ's death with these words - "Then He bowed His head and gave up His Spirit" This is also euphemistic. What an understated way to describe the death of deaths! 'pass away' is a euphemism for 'die'.

Sometimes as God's people, our living out of God's grace is also euphemistic. We are too understated in our witness for Jesus.

So during this Holy Week and Easter may we filled with the power of God's power, love and healing.
